- To make the letters, iron Wonder-Under paper backed fusible web or something similar to the back of your fabric (we used Pellon 725 Heavy-Duty Wonder-Under Transfer Web).
- Trace the letters backwards onto Wonder-Under on the back of the fabric using a stencil of the letters. You can download the PDF of the letters for personal use here.
- Cut out each letter, peel off the Wonder-Under backing and position the letters onto the shirt.
- Iron down the letters following the instructions on the Wonder-Under or the product you are using.
- Finish the shirt by doing a zig zag or similar stitch around each letter and project complete! You could skip doing the stitching but the shirt may not last as long because the letters could eventually peel off.
We found the plain long-sleeved gray shirt at Target in the men’s section. They had a variety of colors and they had a few in the boys section if you need a smaller size. Here’s a close up of the letters. We chose a navy quilting cotton for the L, V, and E. For the O we used a fabric with tiny forks, spoons and knives since the recipient of this shirt is well known for her fabulous baking creations. You can personalize with fabrics that coordinate with something you love, or go with a more traditional Valentine’s red/pink look. This would be a cute shirt for an adult or a child!
